While readers 9 and up may be familiar with some of these traditional tales of gods, demons, and tricksters, they've never heard them like this before. Here fantasy and horror maven Maura McHugh provides a macabre makeover for legends of Loki, Odin, Pandora, Cupid and Psyche, but also myths from Africa, Asia, and the Americas, including Isis, Ra, the Maori goddess of death, and China's lonely first goddess, Nu Wa.

"These are powerful, resonating stories.... Accompanied by Laurie's ferocious and sometimes gory illustrations ... these tales are an ideal collection for students to thoroughly explore the world of mythology or take a quick, occasional dip for a thrill of touch of the profound."—Booklist
